More about this Report

When reviewing the latest Atlanta home values and real estate stats, please keep in mind that in additional to low levels of housing inventory, new construction plays a big role in the increase of neighborhood home values (i.e. the average sales price).  Also, some of the smaller Atlanta neighborhoods like Lake Claire, Cabbagetown and Reynoldstown only sell a few homes each year, so the change in the average sales price can vary dramatically from year to year. The more affordable Atlanta neighborhoods with average home prices under $350K are still in high demand…. and the prices are exploding! .

If you have questions about your Atlanta neighborhood or the current value of your home, please call us at 404-205-8800.
